Hi...Need your help please! I currently have a Nvidia geforce fx5500 256mb agp graphics card on my pc (motherboard is an 'elitegroup 755-a2' and is about 3 year old). I fancy a 'GeForce AGP 7300GT 512MB Graphics Card by Sparkle' seen on auction site. Will this card be an improvement and will it be suitable for my motherboard please? According to my motherboard manual..."The AGP slot is used to install 3D graphics adapter that supports the 8x AGP card which is also backward compatible with 4x AGP card. The slot is keyed to support only the latest 1.5 volt AGP cards"....If not, can anyone recommend an agp card for gaming please?
i hav similar doubt. i got acer aspire 2920 with intel x3100 graphics card. itzzz pci-e motherboard. bt i want a nvidia or ati graphics card. is it possible to change the graphics card?? if so which card would work with my laptop???
kayell1, what's your PC spec like - CPU, RAM & PSU in particular? E.g. installing a £80 3850 in a single-core low-end system with 512Mb would be a waste for one thing, & your PSU may not be good enough.
As nosharpe suggests, I'd also be inclined to get something really good off eBay for £40-50. Before purchasing though, make sure it's an AGP card, your PSU will be powerful enough & it'll physically fit in the case.
mir_srk, one cannot normally upgrade laptop graphics - it's very rare if ever. If you want better graphics for a specific reason, then the only option is to buy a laptop that has better graphics. G
